I’ve been looking for new sunscreens to test out this year. For a daily basis I only use SPF 30, I don’t need more than that. If I’m going to be outside a lot I’ll use a higher SPF. SUQQU revamped and released it’s Face Protector 50 UK recently. As you can guess by the name it’s a UK exclusive. I grabbed mine off Selfridges. Details per SUQQU then Selfridges:
Due to an incredibly high demand, SUQQU Face Protector 50 has returned, in a new formulation, exclusive to the UK. The light weight fluid gives fantastic SPF 50 protection while hydrating skin with nourishing extracts from Fermented Rice and Green Tea. Add this at the end of your morning skincare routine for maximum protection & anti-aging for your skin.
Award-winning Japanese beauty brand SUQQU is launching its most advance sun protection yet; introducing Face Protector 50, the latest in revolutionary sun care. SUQQU Face Protector 50 provides ground-breaking UV protection to your skin by filtering out UVA and UVB rays. A water-based cream (making it feel smooth not sticky) developed with hard-working ingredients including flat zinc-oxide ADVAN (anti-damaging UV-A network) and water-resistance zinc oxide, Face Protector 50 fits tightly to the skin to create a long lasting UV Veil that is completely water resistant
This is a light fluid textured sunscreen with a light pink hue. The texture reminds me very much of the La Roche-Posay Anthelios fluids. Very light, not greasy or heavy. No white cast. It absorbs quickly. It does contain alcohol. Same as a lot of these light fluid textured sunscreens. If I’m only using it for a day outside it doesn’t bother me at all. You might find it drying for daily use if alcohol bothers you.
This comes in the cutest small bottle as it’s only 30 ml. It could fit in your pocket and will easily fit in your purse or bag for outdoor touch-ups. You can find it on Selfridges for $42. I loved it, it’s a great fluid high protection sunscreen. It’s not for daily use for me, which is good as that tiny bottle would go very fast.
